After a day of fun, family and beer in and around Grand Rapids, the wife I headed back to our grand beautiful bed-and-breakfast hotel. A quick BA search revealed that The Winchester is a quick walk from our bed, so let's have a nightcap (or three)!

This is a neat spot, no doubt. A haven for hipsters and cool kids. Darker than an evening in Alabama, but what a great atmosphere. Quiet, classy, great music... the perfect hangout, plus a patio for your American Spirit.

18 taps from Short's, Smutty, Stone, Rogue, Greenbush, Vivant and more, with an obvious focus on local/Michigan beers. Serious cocktails as well, and great service.

The food is serious! Foie gras and more... wish we weren't so full to try it. And they serve until past midnight. Gotta love The Winchester!
